C-C Bond Formation Using Top Performing Enzymes

Project description

Bright young minds advance European leadership in green industrial biotechnology

Carbon can form a virtually limitless number of compounds thanks to the many ways carbon can bind to other atoms, including other carbon atoms. Carbon-carbon (C-C) chemistry is one of the most important areas of organic chemistry, leading to diverse molecules including long chains, branched chains and ring structures. The 2005 and 2010 Nobel Prizes in chemistry were awarded for results regarding C-C bond formation, something that is quite difficult to manipulate and control. Catalytic processes have had some success, but natural enzymatic ones could offer a route to significantly more molecules in a more environmentally friendly way and with greater control. The EU-funded CC-TOP project is supporting young researchers and their innovations in cutting-edge enzyme technology directed at C-C bond formation with numerous applications in industrial biotechnology.
